Necklace: c/o Bitchy Gypsy 

Thanks to Vicky’s sale alert, I was able to finally pick up this navy Edie bag.  I pinned it awhile ago and was patiently waiting for a sale.  I also had $100 in J.Crew rewards making the purse only $18 – not bad right?  See the green on Vicky, sagebrush on Elle, the red on Jean and the beige on Kelly.

It already feels like Spring in California and I’ve been on a pastel color kick.  Last Saturday, I went to the outlets and found some pretty Spring arrivals at Ann Taylor factory. I posted them on Instagram but in case you don’t have an account, I thought I would share them on the blog.  I realized that everything was either yellow or polkadots 🙂
MintPleatsandPolkadots-3-2
Polkadot shorts (see on Instagram) $37.49 – size 00P {bar code #13225308}, Yellow chiffon shell (see on Instagram) – size XXSP {style #299427 }
For some reason, there was no tag on my shorts when I brought them home so hopefully the barcode # will still work.  The shorts are slightly big in the waist and has a semi baggy butt.  I’m hoping a belt will help alleviate these issues.   I think these are just adorable and like that they aren’t too short.

Yellow Twist neck dress (see here) $64.99 after 50% off select dresses- size 00P {style #299376}
This dress runs big and I had to slim the sides and waist. FYI – I have it scrunched in the back to make it look better.  I fell in love with the twist collar and pretty yellow color.

Yellow Lace shell $48.74- size XXSP {style #300024}
I spent way too much on this lace top.  The sales weren’t that great because it was a non-holiday weekend.  I won’t be back to the outlets anytime soon so I better make these items work. 
MintPleatsandPolkadots-4-2
Polkadot top $23.86- size XXSP {style #299957}
This was the only item that was truly on sale and found in the clearance racks. I couldn’t help myself and had grabby hands when I saw polkadots and my size.  This one is definitely not on the regret list 🙂  If you don’t live near an Ann Taylor factory, you can still call and get it shipped to you for $7.95 or if you have an AT credit card, shipping should be waived.

  1. Hi Annie, I think the mint necklace looks better with this outfit; it sort of “ties in” with the skirt, while the white necklace looks a tad lost in the background. Thanks to your instagram post last week I went and purchased a lovely mint necklace from BitchyGypsy!

  2. Fun and feminine. This is a great-looking and fun outfit! My inclination is to say that I prefer the mint necklace to go with this outfit rather than the white necklace. The mint necklace is charming and compliments the outfit more so than the simple white necklace. Regardless, the polka dot top is cute, and the mint skirt is stylish.

  3. Lovely outfit Annie! I love the mint necklace more since the white one blends in with the blouse.

    I really love the block heeled pumps on you. I was in store last weekend but I didn’t see any to try on. I guess it’s for the best. 🙂 I also tried on the floral dress Karri showed us but it was too roomy in Petite 0.

    My favorite item from your AT Factory haul are those polka dot shorts. Hopefully I can try them on in real life to assess the fit for myself.

  4. What an adorable outfit! I like the mint necklace better – pops agaist the shirt. The white one seems to disappear.

  5. Wow..Lovely outfit Annie.
    Can you say why those dress are not mine?
    I can not but wait for the next shopping.

  6. ooh i really like the yellow dress. the twisted top would def catch my eye too. i think …tho you didn’t get that great of a deal on the lace yellow top, the polka dot top made up for it.
